Looks like they are not accepting the "For Registration" excuse anymore, when they choose to enforce it.

Unauthorized accessories could be LED High Beams which are very nice but illegal (as I was recently told at an inspection by LTO but the guy who inspected me was not as strict as the above report).

Not wearing a seatbelt?  I see very few in Dumaguete wearing their seatbelt so I wonder who the unlucky person was who got fined for that.

No plate attached.  Some members, including myself, have not bothered to attach a plate as the LTO has not issued one.  Seems they are no longer accepting that excuse.

Of course we can all do what most do:  Stay back 100 meters from the stop check and wait for them to move on :7481:

I'm guilty of that, never worn a seat belt here. suppose if I see a checkpoint I could stop 100 meters and put the seatbelt on  :shades:

It’s common in Ozamiz (not so much in Cagayan) to see a line of motorcyclists pulled over just before a check point who’re either stopped to put on a helmet (lots carry them but don’t wear them) or just stopped and waiting (no registration, no license... who knows).  Car drivers just tend to slow down, the check points around here tend to pay much closer attention to motorcycle riders.

Force of habit I suppose but I always wear a seatbelt and make sure my wife does.I told her to put her seatbelt on the other and after about 30 seconds she hit me, well we were on the motorbike.
